London, June 6: It was a heartbreak from Australia as they managed to collect just one point yet again against Bangladesh in a match which they were favourites to win.

Just like their previous match against New Zealand which was abandoned due to rain, this match too got washed out.
The only difference was that against the Kiwis, Australia were struggling at 53/3 and in this match were on course to chase down a low total of 183 against minnows Bangladesh.
Batting first, the subcontinent side were bowled out for 182 runs. Tamim Iqbal once again proved his worth by scoring a brilliant 95, narrowly missing out on a back to back hundreds.
While chasing, Rubel Hossain picked Aaron Finch's wicket, but the duo of David Warner and Steve Smith were sailing smoothly towards a win when rain interrupted as a villain.
